Andrew Lloyd Webber talking to Amanda Holden about Superstar

Andrew Lloyd Webber has just been talking to Amanda Holden (who is standing in for Lorraine Kelly on ITV1) about his new show Superstar which starts tomorrow night at 7:25 pm

The team led by West End casting director David Grindrod auditioned  about 5000 people up and down the country - some of extremely high standard -  and are now done to the final 10 so that the public can vote for their favourite to appear on the Jesus Christ Superstar Arena tour.

 Jason Donovan (who is on the judging panel for Superstar) and Mel C (who is playing Mary Magdalene in the arena tour) were there to help during the final stages of the thinning out process. It's also a bit of a coup getting the Vicar of Dibley (Dawn French) to join the judging panel to find a Jesus.

ALW said the winner as he needs to have amazing stage presence and incredible charisma and make the audience believe he can perform miracles. Not a lot to ask!
